, united states. actually, i feel very sympathy for people who needed marijuana to treat their illness, i totally sympathize with these people, however, i believe that this should be made by a doctor decision. >> okay, thank you. >> my name is tina jing. i totally object to this particular permit because it will affect our adolescents. >> thank you. >> my name is susan mah. i believe that mcd store being operated or open in the area, it would affect the teenagers very easily because these people are very easily to be influenced because they still lack judgment to know what is good and what is bad. so, i believe the future of our younger generation, this is the hope of our parents and it's the hope for america. thank you. >> thank you. >> my name is oi win wong, i object. >> thank you. >> my name's is dianna chen, i strongly object to it because those people who needed the treatment of the marijuana, they are being taken care of by the doctor and also they could have home delivery. thank you. >> my name is ce chen, i strongly object to the mcd operate in the area. it will affect our next g

[laughter] we will have to name a doorway in addition to the staircase. thank you, everyone, for coming to san francisco. it is a pleasure to receive new and open up our house and to have you discuss, plan, and create relationships perhaps you do not have today among the federal and local police -- agencies working together on recovery. our city has been working hard. we have seen the future. the future is that if we're not prepared, it will not be our future. i got a glimpse of that some years ago when staff and i went down to new orleans. we have begun to realize the devastation was the result of things that could have been done there are national lessons to be learned from any major disaster across our country, what we could have done better. when i visited there those years ago, we stood at the night éovardç -- at the ninthç ward. in addition to taking pictures, we just stood there
